Orthoses, Lower Limb, Knee-Ankle-Foot, Gait

Definition : Knee-ankle-foot lower-limb orthoses (KAFO) designed to provide support during normal function (i.e., gait) of the lower limb. These orthoses usually consist of an ankle foot orthosis with the addition of metal uprights, an orthotic knee joint, and thigh straps. KAFOs are usually intended for patients with debilitated quadriceps to keep knee stability and also to limit the weight bearing of the thigh, leg, and foot while standing and/or walking.
